Torchic (Japanese: アチャモ Achamo) is a Fire-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It evolves into Combusken starting at level 16, which evolves into Blaziken starting at level 36.

Along with Treecko and Mudkip, Torchic is one of the three first partner Pokémon of Hoenn available at the beginning of Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire.

Biology

Torchic is a small, chick Pokémon with stubby, downy, yellow wings. Its body is covered with orange feathers and a fluffy coat of down. There is an orange and yellow crest on its head that resembles a flame. Its two thin legs and short beak are a light brownish yellow, and the feet have three toes in front and one in the back. A male Torchic will have a small black speck on its rear that is not present in females.

Within Torchic's belly, this Pokémon has a flame sac filled with a burning fire. This internal flame causes Torchic to feel warm if hugged. The warmth feels similar to a warm water bottle. As long as Torchic is alive, the internal flame will burn continuously. When attacked, it will shoot fireballs of 1,800 °F (1,000 °C) at its foes, leaving them scorched black. It dislikes darkness, as it cannot see its surroundings. Torchic will follow its Trainer with unsteady steps. While Torchic is rarely found in the wild, it is known to inhabit grasslands. It has been recently seen living in the Terarium of Blueberry Academy.

Evolution

Torchic evolves into Combusken, which evolves into Blaziken.

Trophy information

"A Chick Pokémon. It's a Fire-type that has a flame sac in its belly where it produces fireballs reaching 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit--it shoots these out of its mouth. While Torchic is as cute as can be, it evolves into the powerful Combusken when it levels up. It also then becomes a Fire and Fighting combination."

Trivia

 
Concept Art of Torchic

Origin

Torchic is based on a chicken hatchling. In particular, Torchic's bright orange coloration is based on painted chicks, which are chicks whose feathers are dyed with paint and are typically sold during festivals and fairs.[1] It may also be specifically based on the basan, a legendary fire-breathing chicken in Japanese folklore.

Torchic's gender difference may be based on vent sexing, a chick sexing technique that originated in Japan, where feces is squeezed out of the chick in order to open its cloaca, allowing the chick sexer to observe whether it has a bump inside its cloaca. Normally only male chicks have this bump.

Name origin

Torchic may be a combination of torch and chick (a baby bird).

Achamo may be a combination of 赤ちゃん akachan (baby) and 軍鶏 shamo (a breed of Japanese chicken once raised for fighting).
